Give and take in organometallic complexes

Following up on my previous post on pi-back-bonding in organometallic complexes I came across this nice paper which considers a complex which has such strong interaction between the LUMO on the organic ligand and one of the d-orbitals on the metal (actually the metal plus some other ligands) that the bond is almost covalent.

Above I reproduce the nice figure from the online abstract since it summarises the paper so nicely and unfortunately is not in the paper.
